Bayleef (Japanese: ベイリーフ Bayleaf) is a Grass-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Chikorita starting at level 16 and evolves into Meganium starting at level 32.

Biology

Bayleef resembles a pale yellow sauropod dinosaur or a lizard. A large leaf shaped like a scythe protrudes from its head. It has red eyes, and has one large toenail on each of its four feet. It also has a small tail. It has curled leaf-like growths, stated to be buds with small tree shoots inside, sprouting in a ring around its neck.

The aroma wafting from the leaf-like growths around its neck has a spicy scent, and exhibits various beneficial effects on itself, nearby people, or Pokémon who inhale it. The fragrance has a combination of energizing, stimulating, and healing effects. Bayleef can be rarely found in grasslands among other Bayleef and its evolutions.

Major appearances

Ash's Chikorita evolved into Bayleef in Current Events. Ash's Bayleef still had the same personality it had when it was still a Chikorita, but it soon mellowed out.

Casey's Bayleef

Casey's Chikorita evolved into Bayleef in The Bug Stops Here. It evolved again into a Meganium off screen prior to the events of Here's Lookin' At You, Elekid!.

Episode Pokémon Source Entry
EP161 Bayleef Ash's Pokédex Bayleef, the Leaf Pokémon. The evolved form of Chikorita. Bayleef emits a spicy aroma from the leaves around its neck and its Razor Leaf is extremely powerful.
This concludes the entries from the original series.

In the manga

Bayleef in Pokémon Gold & Silver: The Golden Boys

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Main article: Megaree

In Pokémon Adventures, Crystal's Chikorita evolves into a Bayleef while defending his Trainer against an attack from an old foe, an impish wild Larvitar. Although it had been such a short while since it had evolved that it didn't know how to restrain the Sweet Scent it gave around it (causing wild Lickitung to gather around it), it evolved with its fellow (and newly reawakened) starter Pokémon in the fight against Lugia in the Whirl Islands.

In the Pokémon Gold & Silver: The Golden Boys manga

In Pokémon Gold & Silver: The Golden Boys, Gold has a Bayleef that used to belong to Black, but was released by its former Trainer for being too weak. After joining Gold's team, it has been able to defeat strong opponents such as Bugsy's Scyther.

Trivia

  • Bayleef is the tallest of the second-stage evolutions of starter Pokémon.
  • Bayleef's "necklace" is consistently described as having a spicy aroma, while real bay leaves have a bitter and herbal taste, which is similar to thyme.

Origin

Bayleef is based on a group of dinosaurs called sauropods, specifically the Apatosaurus. Its vegetable part is based on the leaves of the bay laurel, which oil is used for healing and as a stimulant in aromatherapy.

Name origin

Bayleef is a corruption of bay leaf, an herb.
